Officials in Upper Salford Township recently celebrated the opening of the Park to Perkiomen Trail Connector. They cut the ribbon on the 1.3-mile trail earlier this month.

“It’s wonderful to go from imagination to vision to plans,” said Ted Poatsy, Upper Salford Township Supervisor, at the ribbon cutting. “We’re so happy that we have an asset, the Park to Perkiomen, which will outlive all of us.”

Located in Montgomery County, the new trail connects Upper Salford Park with the Perkiomen Trail, a 20-mile multi-use trail. The Perkiomen Trail further connects with other regional parks and trails, so the new connector advances Pennsylvania’s vision of a statewide trail network.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources was one of many partners on the project. The agency supported the trail connector with a grant from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund.
